From January 1991 to March 2007, 61 children and adolescent with acquired severe aplastic anemia received BMT in our institutions. We retrospectively compared the outcome of 30 cases of matched-sibling donor BMT (MSD-BMT) and 31 cases of unrelated donor BMT (URD-BMT). We observed one graft failure among MSD-BMT recipients and three graft failures among(More)
Systemic rotavirus infection, such as rotavirus antigenemia, has been found in immunocompetent rotavirus gastroenteritis patients. However, the pathogenesis of rotavirus infection in immunocompromised transplant recipients remains unclear. Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay was used to measure rotavirus antigen levels in serially collected serum samples(More)
Late-onset circulatory dysfunction (LCD) is a phenomenon specific to premature infants and is characterized by sudden onset of hyponatremia, hypotension, oliguria and non-physiological weight gain, without an obvious cause, in premature infants after stabilization of circulation and respiration. The cause of LCD is not clear, but adrenal insufficiency in(More)
Late-onset non-infectious pulmonary complications (LONIPCs) that arise beyond 3 months after allogeneic hematopoietic SCT include bronchiolitis obliterans (BO), bronchiolitis obliterans with organizing pneumonia (BOOP) and idiopathic pneumonia syndrome (IPS). We retrospectively analyzed the incidence and outcome of LONIPCs among pediatric hematopoietic SCT(More)
OBJECTIVE Insulin-like growth factor binding protein-1 (IGFBP-1) is known to regulate the bioavailability of insulin-like growth factor (IGF) and the levels of IGFBP-1 are increased in the morning in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus. We investigated the nocturnal fluctuations of glucose, IGFBP-1, and free IGF-1 levels with three insulin regimens. (More)
The etiology of idiopathic short stature (ISS) and Leri-Weill dyschondrosteosis (LWD) in European patients is known to include SHOX mutations and copy-number variations (CNVs) involving SHOX and/or the highly evolutionarily conserved non-coding DNA elements (CNEs) flanking the gene. However, the frequency and types of SHOX abnormalities in non-European(More)
Distal deletion of chromosome 3p25 (also termed as 3psyndrome) was firstly reported in 1978. Since then, this rare disorder has been reported in approximately 50 patients, resulting from congenital distal end deletion of chromosome 3p. This syndrome is characterized by low birth weight, microcephaly, hypotonia, growth and psychomotor retardation, ptosis(More)
OBJECTIVE Moderately preterm (MP) (32-33 weeks) and late preterm (LP) (34-36 weeks) infants have higher risks of mortality and growth and developmental problems. We, herein present a new concept of nutritional assessment, total energy intake (TEI), which is the sum total of kilocalories administered in all nutrient forms. METHODS Fifty-two preterm infants(More)
Most cases of Noonan syndrome (NS) result from mutations in one of the RAS-MAPK signaling genes, including PTPN11, SOS1, KRAS, NRAS, RAF1, BRAF, SHOC2, MEK1 (MAP2K1), and CBL. Cardiovascular diseases of varying severity, such as pulmonary stenosis and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), are common in NS patients. RAF1 mutations are most frequent in NS with(More)
